Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
It’s a common misconception that all of Arizona is nothing but dry desert, but that isn’t the case! Check out these five gorgeous lakes that prove otherwise!
Canyon Lake is one of four lakes that Arizona gained when the Salt River was dammed back in 1925. It’s actually the smallest of the four.
Saguaro Lake can be found downstream from Canyon Lake, and is another of the lakes formed from the damming of the Salt River.
Okay, so maybe the name isn’t very original, but Big Lake is one of the best spots in Arizona for fishing!
This small lake is one of several “rim lakes” found on the Mogollan Rim.
This photogenic lake is one of two that calls the granite dells formation home. A damn built across Granite Creek in the early 1900’s created this lake.
